Hello All,

We have a watch guard fire wall up, users inside our network can access the fire which is Filezilla FTP server. I have assigned an external ip address of 173.167.4.11 to the ftp site for external users. No one can access it.  Can someone help with this issue ASAP!

is the firewall doing a 1:1 mapping of a public IP to the private one ? or do you have some portforwarding in place .. if so what ports ? also do you have any filtering going on between the external network and the FTP server.

It might be worth checking http://www.mdjnet.dk/ftp.html for the configuration and ports needed, it depends what mode the FTP server is working in ...

Check your watchguard log to see if it's being blocked when a user tries to connect.  In your watchguard config, did you create a policy rule?

The Policy should look like this:

FTP connections are allowed:

From
Any-Trusted
Any-External

To
(NAT) External IP -> Internal IP

If your external IP is not available, you need to add it to your secondary networks in network configuration area.
